RESULTS: Scandinavian design I february 17, 2016

With a total of nearly €2 million (€1,950,000), PIASA’s sale of Scandinavian Design on 17 February 2016 confirmed the strong results of the previous Scandinavian Design sale last October. The 255-lot sale yield nearly three hours of dynamic bidding by international connoisseurs, attracted by the high quality of the rigorously selected works on offer.

 

Top price of €188,400 went to a majestic PK 80 steel-mounted day-bed (1959) by Danish designer Poul Kjaerholm, renowned for his elegant and refined style (lot 145). Kjaerholm was fascinated by construction materials, like steel – which he considered a ‘natural material.’ A narrower Kjaerholm day-bed, meanwhile, fetched €48,940 (lot 146, est. €25,000-35,000).

An important section of the sale was devoted to Danish ceramicist Axel Salto, whose work always enjoys great success at auction. PIASA have previously staged sales devoted exclusively to Salto, and the ensemble proposed here was again of remarkable quality – as shown by lively bidding for both a beguiling, midnight blue, glazed stoneware vase from his Sprouting series that sold well over-doubleestimate for €114,000 (lot 77, est. €35,000-45,000), and for his Budding vase that claimed a handsome €70,600 (lot 70).

Lamps also featured prominently, several of them designed by Denmark’s Poul Henningsen, the ‘architect of light.’ His iconic Piano table-lamp (1931), with its bakelite glass shade, is a superb example of his penchant for lampshades that exploit reflectors to produce light that is soft and evenly spread. It sold for €56,670 (lot 118).

A noteworthy price of €101,600 was obtained for a Ole Wanscher’s ten-piece, leather-upholstered rosewood T-Chair ensemble (lot 182). There were also excellent prices for works by Peder Moos, led by two elegant coffee-tables in pear-wood and Brazilian rosewood that fetched €12,880 and €32,200 respectively (lots 113/ 114).
